In preparation for a tribute to her late brother at the upcoming oTV Awards, Janet Jackson has opened up about the King of Pop’s children and how they’re coping since the death of their father.

Speaking about her niece Paris’ heart-wrenching speech at Michael’s funeral, Janet says, “I was really proud. People said to me that Michael’s daughter speaking really gave them a sense of how he was as a father, in her words.

Paris is incredibly smart; they are all so smart. She’s a sweet girl. The kids are doing well. They’re with all their cousins. That family love will keep them going.”

Janet added that she always had a hilarious time when hanging out with Michael. “The last time we were together, he’d laugh so hard, he would just start crying. Sometimes his humour would be corny; sometimes dry. He loved the Three Stooges. He loved slapstick. He loved Eddie ourphy in his silly comedies. He loved to have fun… He’s just got so much love, so much heart and so much power through his music.”
